It will arrive in Ireland later this month and will go on public display for the first during the Rally of Lakes from April 29 to May 1.

Paul Ahern is a life-long rally supporter. More recently he sponsored Craig Breen and Paul Nagle’s victory in last year’s Killarney Historic Rally driving a BMW M3.

“We are delighted to have the BMW M8 Competition 625bhp at the Rally of the Lakes weekend to celebrate 50 years of M,” Paul Ahern said, “The legendary M3 rally car has enjoyed much success over the years in Killarney with Bertie Fisher and more recently Craig Breen and Paul Nagle taking victory here with M Power so we look forward to the next 50 years of M.”
